If you had Mirena removed

I tried to have it removed a few weeks back, but the strings were short, so the doctor could not get it out. Now I am seeing a GYN next week and hopefully it will be out.

1. How long to get a period?

2. Did your sex drive improve? If so, how long did that take?

 

Thanks!

Re: If you had Mirena removed

  • I had it removed last September due to a 4cm cyst near where the Mirena was placed. I started to bleed within a day of it removed. It was not a normal period. My cycle returned the next month, where it has been regular ever since. I didn't have a big issue with my sex drive while I had Mirena, but I did notice a slight increase.

    Hope you all turns up well with getting it removed!

  • I never had Mirena, but was on the minipill until we TTC.  Sorry to say, but I never got any sex drive back after DS was born.  I had hoped when I quit BFing that would help, but no such luck.  I did get pregnant a month or two after quiting BFing, so maybe that has something to do with my lack of sex drive?  I feel bad for DH, because our sex life is so routine, after several complaints from him, we now have a every-other-night routine of toys for me, lots of lube, and porn Embarrassed.  I'm due in 2 1/2 weeks, and secretly excited for the 6 week break.

  • I had mine placed in Jan 2012 and had it removed in Oct 2012.  I was fine on it for a few months and then it all went downhill.  I gained 11 lbs in 1 month, my acne went crazy, sex drive plummeted, stomach bloated, and I turned into a raging b!tch (I never get hormonal). 

    My period never went away fully while I had it.  I actually had it removed during my period for comfort purposes.  My sex drive came back pretty  quickly (maybe a month) and is better than it has been in quite a while now that I am hormone free.

    I am glad you felt better once it was out!

    unfortunately, getting mine out is proving to be difficult. Ugh. Going for a third attempt in two weeks, then I will have to have it surgically removed if they can't get it out.

  • My cycle remained the same after it was removed. I never stopped having AF though. Sex was def better after it was out. It took a couple days after for everything to feel a "normal"



  • Thanks everyone! I had it surgically removed on Monday. It went well and I am hoping to be back to normal soon :)
